My Students

My students are second language learners and are in the dual language program. Our school is a Title I school and the majority of my students qualify for the free or reduced-priced lunch program.

I teach three dual language Pre-K classes made up of 60 students with 50% of the time taught in English and 50% of the time in Spanish.

My students are a happy bunch of kids hungry to learn and with donations made to our classroom they will be able to accomplish this.

My Project

Our school and community are still recovering after Hurricane Harvey. We live near a river that swelled after the floods and it was made even worse when the dams were released. Businesses, homes, and schools are still recovering and the nearby high school is closed until April. We have students who moved away and others that moved to our schools. For a four year old first time student, this can be a confusing and frightening experience. I would like to request centers that the kids enjoy coming to school to play with and learn from and after this year, feel safe with. The treehouse and fort builders will let them have dramatic play with strong structures. They can roll play with families in the treehouse and use their creativity to build different types of strong forts. The Spanish learning locks will let students apply phonemic awareness by matching the key to the correct letter sound to open the locks.
